CDC’s National Environmental Public Health Tracking Program is hosting the sixth annual Tracking Awareness Week from July 12-16, 2021. CDC, state and local health departments, partners, researchers, and people interested in environmental health are coming together to highlight important nationwide environmental health issues as well as recognize the work of the Tracking Program.

The theme of this year’s Tracking Awareness Week is Powered by Tracking. This theme will highlight unique data and tools on the Tracking Network that lead to public health action. Tracking is more than data! This theme will also highlight the network of people and partners that power the Tracking Network, and their contributions to creating healthier communities.

Each day of Tracking Awareness Week we will be focusing on a different topic:

  • Monday: Tracking and Sharing Unique Data
  • Tuesday: Expanding Partnerships
  • Wednesday: Responding to COVID-19
  • Thursday: Environmental Justice
  • Friday: Celebrating Successes

Get Involved!
